Nancy Heche, the mother of actress Anne Heche, has coedited and helped write a 500-page antigay book called The Complete Christian Guide to Understanding Homosexuality.
Joe.My.God. reports via Patrick Fitzgerald at Ex-Gay Watch:
“Joe Dallas and Nancy Heche are listed as the general editors. Though most of the book is written by Joe Dallas and Nancy Heche, contributing authors are listed as Alan Chambers, Paul Copan, Melisa Fryrear, Mike Haley, Bill Maier, and Randy Thomas. All of whom, with the exception of Paul Copan (to my knowledge), are or were speakers at Love Won Out conferences.”
Love Won Out is run by Exodus International, the Christian group focused on “liberation” from homosexuality.
In 2006, Heche published an antigay book, The Truth Comes Out, about her life with a closeted husband and her daughter, Anne Heche, who had a highly publicized relationship with Ellen DeGeneres. Nancy Heche's husband died of AIDS in 1983.
When Anne and Ellen went public with their relationship in the late '90s, Nancy Heche said, “It's like a betrayal of an unspoken vow: We will never have anything to do with homosexuals.”
